A Shocking Date! Kiriya's True Identity (衝撃デート!キリヤの真実 "Shougeki Dēto! Kiriya no Shinjitsu"?), dubbed The Truth about Kirea in the edited English dub, is the 21st episode of the season Futari wa Pretty Cure, and also the 21st episode of Pretty Cure franchise overall.

Summary

Feelings of anger and loss cause Kiriya to confess to Honoka that he is from the Dotsuku Zone.

Synopsis

The girls use the Prism Hopish to summon the Stone Guardian, who's half-asleep until Nagisa yells at him. They tell him that they've acquired another Prism Stone, which he congratulates them for, making it five in total for the heroes.

In the Dotsuku Zone, the Evil King demands the power of creation, wanting to use the Garden of Light's own power against them. Kiriya remarks that his sister returned to the darknessFwPC20, so it's his mission to defeat Pretty Cure now, but notes that things haven't gone as planned. Ilkubo assumes that the three Prism Stones the heroes have taken from the Dotsuku Zone are gathered in one place, and defeating them should regain all of the stones. He reminds Kiriya that his existence is linked to the Evil King's feelings, and to not underestimate the power of light.

After school ends, Honoka finds Kiriya waiting for her at the gate. He doesn't say a word as he leads her to a nearby riverbank. When asked by Honoka if something's wrong, Kiriya asks if she likes school, which she confirms. Kiriya recalls how when he first transferred to Verone, he had trouble adjusting, but is now glad that he did, as he had a bit of fun and even met her. Honoka is glad he feels that way, remembering how they helped out at a farmFwPC17, wanting to do something like that again. Kiriya also recalls when Honoka apologized to himFwPC18, which embarrasses her, but he notes that no one has ever treated him like that before. Honoka soon realizes that he's acting strange, just as the clouds roll in and rain starts to fall.

Ep21-2

Kiriya shows Honoka his prism stone

Honoka brings out her umbrella and approaches Kiriya to cover both of them. Kiriya tells her that he won't be attending school anymore, as he quit. He walks away from her and the umbrella, asking if Honoka's "noticed by now," which confuses her. Kiriya then points to the pouch containing Mipple's Card Commune and asks how "that one" is doing, saying that he's "different from everyone," with Mipple able to tell her why that is. Honoka says that she's sleeping, so Kiriya takes off his pendant necklace and shows it to her, which brings back memories of Pisard, Gekidrago, and Poisony all having similar ones that each contained a Prism Stone. Honoka is in disbelief, losing grip of her umbrella as it is blown into the river. Kiriya states that he serves the Evil King, meaning he has no choice but to face her and Nagisa in combat. Honoka takes this as him knowing their identities as Pretty Cure. Kiriya says he can't escape from his fate no matter what, but notes that if he were instead born here in the Garden of Rainbows, his fate would have changed.

Once home, Honoka silently sits in her room with the lights off, as a now-awake Mipple asks what happened. Just then, her grandmother enters, also noticing something wrong. Honoka asks her grandmother if people can change their own fates, and is told that it depends on the person, requiring great effort and perseverance, and most of all, the strong mind to face it.

The next day, Honoka arrives at Nagisa's house, with the latter being free on Sundays. Honoka brings cookies as packed by her grandmother. Suddenly, Ryouta runs up to greet Honoka but is stopped by his older sister. Nagisa says that both of her parents are out at the moment, and asks Honoka to wait in her room. The visitor notes that Nagisa's room is cute, just before Mepple and Mipple pop out to embrace. Nagisa arrives back, carrying a tray of drinks and a bag of chips with her mouth, as she attempts to say something only for her words to come out incoherently. Mepple understands what she's trying to say, that they should be careful as Ryouta could barge in without knocking.

Ep21-4

Nagisa, Mipple and Mepple heard Honoka's story

After setting the snacks on a table, Nagisa asks Honoka what's the matter, given that she came to her house to discuss it. Honoka brings up that she met Kiriya yesterday after school, who "confessed" to her. The wording causes Nagisa to do a spit-take and choke, covering Honoka in chips. Honoka implies that she didn't mean a "confession of love," prompting Nagisa and the others to ask what she meant instead.

Honoka explains that Kiriya confessed that he was from the Dotsuku Zone, which initially doesn't faze the three, who take a second to process what they just heard and become immediately shocked. Nagisa wonders why Kiriya didn't take the opportunity to attack them during all the times they were close together. Honoka notes that things seemed to have changed now, as Kiriya is determined to fight this time. Later that night, Nagisa is conflicted over having to fight a friend, but also protecting Mepple and Mipple. Meanwhile, at Honoka's house, Chuutaro brings her a note with "Tomorrow morning at 4 o'clock" written on it.

The next morning, the girls arrive at the riverbank to find Kiriya waiting. They plead with him to stop, as they're all classmates, but he tells them that he was just impersonating one. He says that if they don't want to fight, they should hand over the Prism Stones, but the girls refuse to comply, noting that what he's fighting for is "wrong." With no choice left, Kiriya charges past the girls, sending a gust to knock them from behind. As the girls continue to be blown back, Mepple and Mipple tell them to transform before they're defeated, so they hold hands.

As the fight resumes, neither Black or White try to harm Kiriya. Mipple suggests they use Marble Screw, but White refuses, with Black saying they could never harm a friend, even knowing what they do now. White also claims that Kiriya began developing feelings just like they have, but he refuses to back down, saying that if he gave up now, he would have to return to the darkness. Black claims that even if they have to use force, they will make him understand that he can change his fate. She tries to make him remember the fun times he had playing football, and for him to try and understand Honoka's feelings, that she was trying with all his might for him. During all this, Black is still trying to fight Kiriya.

White is on the ground, and Kiriya is about to hit her, only to hesitate, leaving him open to Black's attack. Kiriya wonders why they try so hard for the denizens of the Garden of Light, with Black stating that they're the only ones that can protect them. White promises to never give up the Prism Stones, before collapsing. Now aware of how much pain White is in, Black stops to tell Kiriya that he is hurting her by doing this. She asks if he would be happy if they gave him the Prism Stones leaving her like this, causing him to pause and look at his own momentarily.

To their surprise, he suddenly stops and approaches them, handing over his stone. He says that he is without the power to change his fate, but they have the power to change theirs, and this is all he can do about his. He claims that the power that brings them together is amazing, along with the power of the stones to change one's fate. He can feel the five stones attracting his single one, stating that the girls must be drawing out this kind of power. However, he can no longer escape from his fate at this point.

Kiriya notices Ilkubo standing nearby, and walks to him, to the objections of Pretty Cure. Ilkubo is surprised that he won't run away, but reminds Kiriya of what will happen to those unable to carry out the task of the Evil King, and he is prepared, as he walks into Ilkubo's cloak, where there is a portal leading to the Dotsuku Zone. Ilkubo then turns to Pretty Cure, asking what is this 'power' of theirs, before disappearing.

Back to normal, the girls sit together, and Honoka wonders if Kiriya actually meant what he told her a few days ago. She remarks that he may not have been so different then that of a normal junior-high school student, and Nagisa comments that he wasn't able to change the fate he was born with, but in the end, he showed true courage to fight against it, and gave them his Prism Stone. They make a vow that in order to protect this courage, they must protect Mepple and Mipple at all costs. While they sadly think about losing their friend, they notice the sun beginning to clear the rain away.
